Station Map for the Occultation by (2573) Hannu Olavi at Friday, 2010 January 01 (~ 23:14 UT)
V-Magnitude of target star TYC 2481-00790-1: 9.1 mag
UCAC instrumental “pseudo-R” fit-model magnitude: 8.5 mag (data from UCAC3)
The max duration is expected to be 1.4 sec with a max drop of 6.8 mag.
The event will take place at an altitude of 67 deg and at azimuth 108 deg. The sun will be at an altitude of -65 deg. (At predicted centre line for longitude E 05 deg)
There is a 1 sigma uncertainty interval of ± 5.97 path widths.
The probabilities to see a positive event:
Centre line: ~ 7 %
Path limits: ~ 7 %
1 sigma lines: ~ 4 %
2 sigma lines: ~ 1 %
(Calculation according to Raymond Dusser, E.A.O.N. Circular #10)
PLEASE REMEMBER: Predictions are sometimes wrong. Please observe even with a small probability.
